The Children's Business Fair gives enterprising young people an opportunity to bring their business ideas to life. The Children's Business Fair allows kidpreneurs to pitch their products and services to real people for a real profit while learning the academic and social skills required to successfully run a business.


The Acton Children's Business Fair began in Austin, Texas as a way for children ages 6-14 to experience entrepreneurship education in a real-world (and fun) way. 


This fair is hosted by Arrow Accelerated Academy, Naperville's own Acton Academy.
